Shared Databases

A Shared Database provides a synchronized storage location accessible by multiple concurrent users, which behaves just like the local folders with additional Group based access controls on folders. Once logged in, folders in the shared database are available under the Shared Databases icon in the Sources panel.

Two types of Shared Databases are available in Geneious. Your Geneious license will provide access to set up a basic Shared Database using Direct SQL Connection. A Shared Database with additional features and increased security is available to customers who have purchased a license for Geneious Server Database in addition to Geneious.
